Former TCU Golfers Faring Well at Valero Texas Open
FORT WORTH, Texas (Sept. 15, 2004) - Former TCU golfers J.J. Henry (1998 graduate) and Adam Meyer (2004) have made strong showings through the first two rounds of the PGA Tour's Valero Texas Open at LaCantera Golf Club (Par 70; 6,896 yards) in San Antonio, Texas.
Henry is tied for third among 145 participants after rounds of 64 and 67. His nine-under-par score of 131 is just two shots out of the lead currently held by Dean Wilson. He has made 10 birdies and just one bogey in two days of play. Henry, the 1998 National Co-Player of the Year at TCU, is currently ranked 109th on the PGA Tour's 2004 money list.
Meyer, who hails from China Spring, Texas, posted an even-par round of 70 on Thursday, then fired a two-under 68 thanks to a three-under back nine on Friday to finish right on the cut line (-2). Meyer, who is tied for 68th place, gained entrance to his first-ever PGA Tour event after winning a qualifier on Monday at the Golf Club of Texas with a nine-under-par score of 63. In 2004, Meyer was honored as a third-team All-American, and helped the Horned Frogs to a final ranking of 10th nationally.
Meyer will tee off at 11:10 a.m. on Saturday, while Henry is slated to begin his third round at 11:50 a.m. The top 70 players plus ties advanced to weekend play.
